Add and manage WordPress

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

ClusterCS offers easy CMS management (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, xCart, etc.)

First of all, if you need help to create a domain, you should check out adding and managing domains with ClusterCS.

A CMS needs a working database and access to it:

Set any name you wish for your Database:

You also need an user for the CMS to connect to the newly-created database:

Again, choose a fitting name, and you can use our generator for a secure password:

Keep localhost checked if you are on a single server environment, and need to connect only from within it. If you want to have access to the database remotely, or have a Cluster, then Anyhost will allow you so.

Global Locations – You can define your own list of IPs from where to connect, available for all Database Users within your ClusterCS account.

User Locations – You can define your own list of IPs from where to connect, available only for the current Database User.

Giving pemissions to access the database to the user should be the next step. Keep in mind, you should give it only the permissions it needs. (For most CMS, the permissions needed are SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, however they may vary depending on the CMS and the plugins that you need).

Now you should have enough to install your chosen CMS… except for the CMS. Go ahead, download your CMS of choice and upload it to the public_html folder of your domain.

For example’s sake, I have chosen wordpress, from

Accessing your domain will take you to the install script of the CMS. Here is what mine looked like:

Congratulations! You should now have a working CMS installed on your domain!
